How much will I get?

How much you receive depends on your personal circumstances. The basic amount, known as the ”family element” is up to £545 a year. There is a “tax credit calculator” on the website that will help you work out how much you could get. This benefit is paid weekly or every four weeks into your bank account. Should your circumstances change, such as your income increases or decreases or your child leaves home you must report this as it could affect the amount you receive. You can do this by calling the Tax Credits Number. You can get money for each qualifying child and this will not affect any benefits you receive. However, you cannot claim Tax credits and Universal Credit at the same time.
